Propaganda disguised as medical science.,
This review is from: Stephen Fry's The Secret Life Of The Manic Depressive [DVD]  (DVD)
I have I'm afraid to shatter the illusion that is being created here but "manic depression" is a cover-up for being a self-centred binge drinker. It's as corny as that! Stephen Fry is (and Spike Milligan was) a classic example of this. The trick is to get the diagnosis and then to conceal the drinking bit. Such people will go to great lengths to deny this but in the end they have to admit it, as Fry does in this piece of propaganda. The six cases of "manic depressives" examined are all shown propping up bars (including Fry Himself) except for one girl who is shown day dreaming in an off-licence. Psychiatry is a con and when the truth is revealed it's rather like being shown how a conjuring trick is done and you think, "Gosh! What a mug I've been."

I've been bipolar all my life and I don't drink or take any other drugs. I don't expect narrow-minded people to understand how it feels, but you could at least show some respect for what you don't understand.

You may not have noticed, but a signifcant number of the population go to pubs and bars as a socialisation venue. This does not mean they all drink. I know mant people, BP and otherwise who only drink soft drinks in pubs. Try and be more constructuve with your comments, or dont bother.
